Around 10 supporters of the flag pulled up in vehicles flying the controversial symbol just outside the capitol, where protesters have been gathered for two weeks – demanding the flag be removed. Moments after the supporters arrived, the two sides were clashing, with punches being thrown by both groups and the police having to separate everyone.
